Helping Schools in South Africa

Kathy Hassell and her husband moved to South Africa several years ago. Kathy is a former President of Aurora and told us of the problems of the local schools in Port Elizabeth. The children, from very poor African families, were expected to buy many of their books and for most this was not possible. So, in conjunction with the local Rotary Club and our neighbouring clubs, we put together a project to buy some books.
We collected £800 and the Rotary Foundation added another £300 and the combined sum was sent to the Port Elizabeth club who purchased books for the children.

Our photos show some of the childrenn and one of the many letters we received in appreciation.
